Driving a Jeep® on- or off-road is an incredible feeling, but Jeeps® are more than just a fun way to explore the unknown. Jeeps® make great family SUVs because of their advanced safety features, spacious interiors, and innovative technology. So how do you make sure yours lasts for years to come? Here's how to extend your Jeep's® life:

  • Keep up with preventative maintenance: The most important thing you can do for your Jeep® is to stay on top of routine maintenance, as outlined by the owner's manual. Schedule regular oil changes and tire rotations at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram, and we'll let you know when it's time for less common maintenance, like work on your brake pads or spark plugs. We also do a thorough inspection during every maintenance visit, spotting potential issues before they develop into anything damaging.
  • Drive it safely: Your Jeep® is designed for serious off-road adventures, but that doesn't mean you can put the pedal to the floor in any scenario and come out unscathed. When on roadways, follow all traffic rules, and avoid harsh acceleration and braking. Driving your vehicle rough is the easiest way to cause problems. When off-roading, take it slow, and make sure you know what you are doing. If it's your first time off-roading, bring someone with lots of experience to guide you.
  •  Wash your Jeep® regularly: Whether your Jeep® is your daily driver or a toy for off-road encounters, you need to keep it looking clean. And that's not just for appearances: Regular car washes can prevent rust buildup on the body and underbody.
  • Pay attention: Do regular inspections of crucial vehicle components in between maintenance visits, and always listen for new sounds. If your Jeep® makes a sound you've never heard before, it's worth having it checked out. Similarly, never ignore a dashboard warning light. If you catch a problem early, it's much more likely it won't develop into something worse.

If your vehicle needs essential maintenance or repairs to keep it in fighting shape, contact the service department at Transwest CDJR for an appointment.
